Lovely recipe! My husband wasn't keen on having fish in a curry but agreed to try it and really enjoyed it! I didn't use as much stock as the recipe states and added some cauliflower florets to it.Served with basmati rice and a naan. Yummy!

Thank you for this recipe. I made some changes though. Added coconut milk instead of vegetable stock and just half the amount of oil. I used my non-toxic MEC pure clay pot to cook this recipe (best pot to cook any curry) and the flavor was unbelievably good and also all the nutrients stay in the food when cooked in clay pot. I got mine from mecware.US.

This recipe is brilliant. It was a hit at our family dinner this past weekend...I served it with basmati rice, garlicky green beans, homemade naan bread, kachumber salad and raita. I cannot wait to make it again. I used the recipe as a base and adjusted some of the ingredients as I felt was needed. I used Italian tinned tomatoes packed in puree, 2/3 of the stock and I did thicken it at the end with a cornstarch/tomato juice slurry. I also added a chopped zuchinni. The flavor was intense, (we substituted a mild curry as one of our members is not fond of very spicy), well rounded and tasted even better the next day. (I roughly doubled the amounts). Will definitely be making this again...and soon!

Once you have done this takeaways will be a thing of the past. Freezes well. I used frozen pollock.

Delicious and very easy! I used cod loin, added sweet potato and cauliflower and half a can of coconut milk. Amount of fluid perfect (no need to omit any of the stock - loads is absorbed int the sweet potato). Went down a trust with hubbie and 9 year old daughter.

Really tasty dish, even the children loved it! I had to use curry powder (tikka blend) as I didn't have paste, and I added a can of coconut milk instead of stock although I did add a vegetable stock 'stockpot' capsule. Lots of sauce, which we love. Definitely will be doing again!

LOVE this fish curry!!! Made loads of times now. I also add king prawns aswell as cod. I don't use as much stock either just add a little as you go. Also add a chopped chilli to spice it up a bit more as my partner likes his currys hot! Favourite mid week meal as its so quick too! We have basmati rice with ours.

Lovely dish. Followed the recipe exactly and turned out delicious. There was a lot of sauce so next time I will reduce the amount to 100ml and add a little chilli.
Quick, easy and healthy dish. I will definitely cook again.

Made this recipe but with less stock & reduced down more to thicken, can always add more water to desired consistency, added chunks of red pepper for added texture & served with basmati rice with cumin seeds added to the water during cooking, was a lovely dish, tasty, low fat, easy to make

This was very tasty. I made it with a huge piece of cod loin I bought.
I wasn't sure on the measurements on the madras paste (heaped or flat tablespoons?). In the end I used 2.5 flat tablespoons of pataks madras paste, and it was a good balance with just enough kick.

The sauce was definitely too thin though, even after adding cornflour. With the sauce form the tinned tomates, I'd only use 100ml of stock next time.

I love this basic dish. I add any peppers/mushrooms etc I have in the fridge and any white fish. I have even made this before with 'cook from frozen' fillets and it was still nice and very economical!

Delicious! I added chickpeas, and the fish only took a couple of minutes to cook. I simmered the onions in the sauce for a few minutes to reduce the liquid a little.

I've done this several times now - it really is so easy and quick. I've used cod loin (when on offer in Tesco).

It was lovely even though I made a bit of a mess of it.....I'm going to try again and I'm sure it will be even better.
